IL Planning Committee sharpens its focus for the future


ByBill Quinlivan INDIAN LAKE Ñ The recent Indian Lake Community Development Corporation (ILCDC) Board and Community Planning Committee meeting saw the organization continuing forward in its planning process. During the board meeting segment, it was announced that since the ILCDC received 501 (c) (3) status (not-for-profit), it has already begun to receive contributions from members of the community interested in financially participating in the betterment of the economic environment of the town. Due to the 501 (c) (3) status, all donations to the organization are tax deductible for the contributors, enabling community members to positively impact the community in which they live while benefiting from a personal income tax deduction.

“Guiding the Boat”

So far during the planning process, the committee has been working off of the Ò Guiding the BoatÓ document originally developed for the purpose of community planning. The committee has looked at what has been accomplished against this plan in the past year and is refining objectives and specific areas of concentration for moving forward. The committee has clearly defined economic development as a primary focus. The decision has been made to take a positive approach to both planning and action in that the committee has decided to build off assets as opposed to concentration on needs. CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

Warren County sales tax payout changes eyed ByThom Randall QUEENSBURY Ñ Warren County Administrator Paul Dusek is looking into the possibility of establishing a new formula for distributing county sales tax revenue to its 11 towns that some county supervisors contend would be fairer way of divvying it up. His research was prompted by supervisors who contend that the present way of appropriating it Ñ on the basis of a townÕ s total real estate value Ñ isnÕ t fair, particularly to the smaller, rural communi-

ties without expensive lakefront property. Lake Luzerne Supervisor Gene Merlino has spearheaded the idea of establishing fairer sales tax revenue distributions. He has contended that the rural towns have the same financial needs to maintain infrastructure, but the towns like Lake George, Bolton, Horicon Hague and Queensbury Ñ with plenty of expensive lakefront properties Ñ get far more than their fair share. To date, town supervisors of the communities with ample lakefront property have balked at the idea of re-distribution. Merlino has also noted that the lakefront

and resort property in the county is escalating remarkably in value, while other properties havenÕ t, leading to an ever-greater gap between the property-rich and property-poor towns. At a recent Board of Supervisors meeting, he circulated data showing that such a wealth disparity has been increasing dramatically for the countiesÕ towns over the past 27 years. His figures indicated that Luzerne’s share of income tax revenue dropped by nearly one-third over that time. CONTINUED ON PAGE 3

Access to Mt. Sabattis radio tower denied pending legal agreement By Katherine Clark LONG LAKE Ñ Long Lake resident John Adam and the town board have been clashing over a 13 year dispute regarding a right of way over AdamÕ s land to allow access to the Mt. Sabbatis radio tower. When Adam bought his property next to the Mt. Sabattis Recreational Park in 2000, he looked for legal documentation for the electrical cord laying on the floor of the woods and the access road going through the upper part of his property. Town Supervisor Clark Seaman said it appears access to the property was given through a Ò good-old-boys handshake dealÓ with the previous land owners. At the regular town board meeting on Nov. 25, AdamÕ s requested from the board a stipend of $1,000 a year for 10 years for the town to have access to the road. “At first I didn’t want any payment I just wanted something in writing to protect myself or my family, just something to say this is a legal agreement,Ó Adam said. Ò But IÕ ve had to pay a lawyer out of my own pocket to

Sales tax

Continued from page 1 Dusek said last week he sympathized with the concerns, particularly how the gap was getting ever wider in revenue distribution. Ò We need to answer the questions of how to improve revenue for Warren CountyÕ s smaller towns,Ó Dusek said, noting that the appropriations on assessed value has been the traditional formula. He observed that reduced sales tax revenue over time means a heavier tax load falls on the property owners in the townÕ s without pricey property. Ò The shift is a real problem,Ó he said. Ò We need to look at ways to enhance the revenues of the small towns so it remains affordable for people to live in those communities.Ó Warrensburg officials have for years raised the question of the fairness of sales

help me and there still hasnÕ t been anything done.Ó Adam said he wanted a written agreement that would guarantee signs and barriers to be posted to discourage people from trespassing on his land and for the electrical wire to be brought up to code and moved closer to the road. Adam and members of the town board have discussed the issue for years and in 2005 and again in 2012 he hired a lawyer to help create legal paperwork. Ò HeÕ s asking for $10,000 to get to the tower, easement for the property would be assessed at $149,Ó Seaman said. Ò I think it was the sentiment of the board members that he was holding the town hostage on this matter.Ó Seaman said there hadnÕ t been any discourse between Adam and the town until October 2011 when Adam stopped allowing the town access to the road and the wires. Ò I think it took not allowing them on the property before they decided to really look into this,Ó Adam said. Ò The use of the land is worth what itÕ s worth. I wasnÕ t asking for anything but I had to pay over $5,000 out of my own pocket to have it get this far.Ó

The estimated amount of the land used for the towerÕ s electrical cord and roadway is about 135 feet, according to Seaman. The electrical cord and the road all lead to the radio tower which hosts a transmitter which backs up local emergency services and hosts National Public Radio (NPR) and Christian radio station WMHR. In the townÕ s 2013 budget, Seaman said $10,000 was allocated for repairs to the current tower. Ò I think it is the hope of the town to resolve this and come up with a viable solution,Ó Seaman said. Built in 1979, the tower is in need of repairs to the emergency response stations and the transmitter for WMHR, which no longer work, and NPR has also asked for permission to repair its transmitter. Seaman and Adam both expressed interest in resolving the issue of the land usage but a point of compromise has yet to be discovered. Ò What I really want is to see everything brought up to code and for their to be a legal agreement that protects me as a property owner,Ó Adam said.

tax distribution, noting that their community hosts very active commercial activity that generates substantial sales tax revenue, but it receives relatively small portion of that money back to help fund town expenses. For instance, a town like Horicon with plenty of lakefront received about $1.35 million in revenue from sales tax in 2012 Ñ with scant commercial activity that generates the revenue Ñ while Warrensburg received about $756,000 last year. Queensbury has historically had either a low town tax or none at all Ñ but they also host a wealth of stores and commercial properties that generate sales tax. But Merlino has argued that the residents of the rural towns buy most of their goods and services in Queensbury, because they arenÕ t readily available in their hometowns Ñ and the small-town residents ought to get a small share of that revenue back.

Merlino has also stressed that state law allows counties to devise their own distribution formulas. Dusek and others have suggested that the formula might be retained, but a special county fund could be created to distribute money to the assessment-poor towns like Warrensburg, Thurman, Lake Luzerne and Stony Creek. Although Merlino has cited that a shift of several million dollars in sales tax revenue to the poorer towns would be equitable, he recently suggested to the county leaders that $500,000 be set aside in a special fund for the towns not now getting their fair share. Dusek said he would be fully evaluating the options for re-distribution, and heÕ d be presenting suggestions to the board of supervisors in the coming months. Ò We need a way that everyone is treated with equity and fairness,Ó he said.

Food pantries need our support


ocal food pantries Ñ and many of our neighbors Ñ need help. The holiday season is always a busy time for food pantries. The combination of yearend expenses, holiday pressures, the arrival of the heating season, the loss of seasonal jobs and other factors make for peak demand during December and January. While food pantries anticipate the increased demand, this holiday season brings never-beforeseen problems for food shelves. Cuts to the federal food stamp program took effect Nov. 1. Those cuts to the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, widely known as food stamps, began with the sunset of higher benefits that were part of the 2009 federal stimulus package meant to help Americans through the recession. Those cuts mean more people are relying on local food banks. Ò We really noticed a difference when SNAP was cut,Ó Margaret Beuerlein, director if the Ticonderoga Food Pantry, said. Ò A lot of people depend on food stamps.Ó Contrary to common belief, many of those relying on food stamps are working people. In fact, nearly 30 percent of the adults receiving SNAP benefits have jobs. Also, food stamps benefits aren’t exactly big money. The average monthly SNAP benefit per person is $133.85, Ñ less than $1.50 per person, per meal. Ò People are really struggling to make ends meet,Ó Beuerlein said. Ò WeÕ re seeing more and more people who have jobs, the working poor. The cost of living has gotten greater than many incomes in our area. People canÕ t live on minimum wage.Ó The Ti Food Pantry has served an average of 100 families a month in 2013, but in October that number jumped to 178. Beuerlein expects it to grow further. Ò ThatÕ s families,Ó she stressed. Ò That doesnÕ t count the children. I donÕ t know how many actual people are being served at the food pantry. I know itÕ s more than ever before.Ó TiconderogaÕ s food shelf is not alone. According to the Hunger Action Network of New York State, 81 percent of the stateÕ s emergency food programs reported an increase in the number of individuals served in 2012, roughly one third of which were children. Ò Currently, 1 in 6 residents of New York State struggle with food hardship,Ó said Sharon M. Smith, executive director of the Food Bank Association of New York State,. Ò And in light of the recent Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program cuts, many more New Yorkers will need to turn to emergency feeding providers such as food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters served by the eight regional food banks throughout New York State.Ó The demand on food pantries could continue to grow. Deeper cuts to SNAP over the next decade are possible as negotiations about the federal farm bill wear on in Washington. The federal program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The cuts to food stamps arenÕ t the only problem facing local food pantries. Food costs, including those to food pantries, are going up. The Moriah Food pantry, like most food shelves in the area, purchases food from the Northeast Regional Food Bank. Increased prices there mean less food for the Moriah food shelf. Sue Morse, director of the Moriah Food Pantry, said her agency is having trouble filling its shelves this holiday season. Ò IÕ m asking residents to donate non-perishable food items, hold food drives and make cash donations,Ó Morse said. Ò Moriah residents have always come through for the pantry in the past and we know we can count on their caring and generosity to help once again.Ó Gov. Andrew Cuomo has also recognized the problems facing food pantries. Ò With the combination of cuts to the federal SNAP program and an approaching winter season, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers support their local food bank,Ó Cuomo said. Ò New YorkÕ s food banks serve a variety of vulnerable populations across the state, including senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and low income families Ñ many of whom have already been impacted by federal SNAP reductions. By purchasing a few extra items to donate when grocery shopping, we can all do our part to put food on the table of those in need this holiday season.Ó The good news is that North Country residents are a generous lot. Food drives are now planned in several communities. Help is on the way. LetÕ s hope everyone does their part. While food pantries are seldom in the news, they provide a crucial, year-round service. They deserve and need our support. Ñ

Remembering Julia Cadbury

Letters to the editor

To the News Enterprise: When the high school students attended Les Miserables at the Theatre Institute on Oct. 4, they learned Indian Lake had lost a good friend. Mrs. Julia Cadbury was a member of our community here at Indian Lake and a benefactor to our school children. She honored us with her generosity on many occasions, making it possible for elementary, middle and high school students to see shows we might not have otherwise. She spent her own money to provide bus transportation several times. When we arrived at the theater, everyone made a fuss over the Indian Lake students because Mrs. Cadbury was our biggest fan. Her husband, Warder Cadbury, was an Adirondack History scholar, and he and Judy were especially fond of Heritage Week and its effort to cultivate and instruct ILCS students in local history. In recent years, Judy gave financial support to fund Heritage Concerts presented to the kids and the public. This involved Peggy Lynn, Dan Bergren and Dan DugganÕ s group Ò JamcrackersÓ working with elementary students in workshops to write and remember songs that teach about Indian LakeÕ s history as well as our natural history. These songs were then performed with the students at a public concert. Therefore, as a token of its appreciation, the Indian Lake Faculty Association made a small donation to the Theatre Institute in Mrs. CadburyÕ s name. Mrs. Cadbury passed away on Aug. 10. Nora Harrington, Indian Lake

Degrees matter

To the News Enterprise: Readers aware that Indian Lake Dam (elev. 1660Õ ) notched 103F on July 2, 102 the next day and 102 again on the Fourth...back in 1911...must have found mystifying that with just Ò three 90-degree days in a rowÓ Paul LittleÕ s Riparius site had the Ò warmest on recordÓ July this year. The listed Riparius elevation of 876Õ implies that if PaulÕ s site, like Indian Lake Dam, is by a big body of water, then its denser air (vs. Indian Lake) would, in 1911, have reached ~109, 108 and 108F (as physics hikes readings ~2F for every ~300Õ elevation drop, and v.v.). Riparius sites away from big water would thus have been hotter still. Oddly, for that reason, the hottest New York State temperature which officials recognize is a mere 108F, set July 22, 1926 in just 35Õ above mean sea level! For still more perspective, contrast PaulÕ s 47F low this July vs. SaranacÕ s 33 (which smashed their 1953 mark of 36 for July 25th). SaranacÕ s 1,600Õ elevation canÕ t explain more than ~3 of that 47-vs.-33 spread. Further, even my 2000Õ Indian Lake ridge-top hit 46 that morning: Unless itÕ s windy, weÕ re always warmer than surrounding valleys, since air gets heavier as it cools and naturally drains into those valleys. LittleÕ s readings, too, would be skewed upward, if he happens to be on terrain higher than his neighborsÕ . Ditto, if he uses an HO-83 hygrothermometer, known to have a warm bias of 0.9-1.3F, as well-known professional meteorologist blogger Watts has shown (http://wattsupwiththat. com/2008/01/10/inside-the-asos-ho83-tempdewpoint-sensor/). Also unhelpful is his short observation track: He notes 1987 & Ô 88 as the previous Ò recordÓ -warm Julies. To see what data corruption can do, look at Tucson, AZ, where in June 1990 a malfunctioning HO83 fabricated dozens of new highs for the city, while surrounding areas registered

Thank you to those who serve

To the News Enterprise: As I finished the Thanksgiving meal, my wife and i prepared for our family, I couldnÕ t help noticing the empty plate that is placed on our table every year. This is to remember the members of our family who served in the armed forces of the Untied States of America both past and present. I thought about the men and women who are far away from their loved ones, with no possibility of personal contact other than an email and if they are lucky a phone call. I realized the only reason I was home safe and secure enjoying the bounty of our table was because of the sacrifices that were and are being made by Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and covert operatives around the world. With Christmas coming I know there are a lot of organizations around the country receiving donations from people. The vast majority of these organizations do some really great things for total strangers. If you have the means during these economically difficult times to donate anything, whether it be time or money, I would like to suggest two organizations. The American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). These two organizations support our troops and our veterans in a variety of ways. What could possibly be a better way of saying Ò thank youÓ for the freedoms we all enjoy today. Something as simple as a holiday card to a total stranger who is deployed is a great way of showing your appreciation. And it doesnÕ t cost much! In closing I wish I could shake the hand of every single person who served or is serving our country. I know thats not possible so all I can say is thank you and may god bless all of you.

Notes from Planet Earth By Wes Dingman CEO of a large bank and wealth management corporation, while denigrating those he terms the Ò elitesÓ of the academic world, nevertheless proclaims that Ò thinking laborÓ is a much more valuable effort than physical labor, thereby deserving of much higher salaries. He concludes that we should either eliminate the minimum wage or reduce it substantially. In contrast, the second book, whose author is Professor of Economics Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, calls for converting industries to workersÕ self-directed enterprises or WSDEs and bringing democracy into the workplace. As you might expect, I am skeptical of anything promoted as a Ò cure.Ó However, given our current low standing among developed countries on most measures of health, I would welcome any improvement in the efficiency and quality of our industries if, and only if, it also helped to manage our NationÕ s resources, including

our human resources, more equitably, healthily, and sustainably. King Arthur Flour (KAF), a business I had the good fortune to explore first hand this past October, is a business which has, indeed, shown itself capable of altering the manner in which it treats its employees and conducts its business. Founded in 1790 as the Henry Wood Flour Company for the express purpose of providing this newly formed country with high-quality flour, it became King Arthur Flour in 1896 by which time it provided flour milled solely from U. S.-grown grains. It moved from the Boston area to Norwich, VT in 1984 and in 1992 began teaching bread making in local schools. In 1996 its then owners, Frank and Brinna Sands, began the process of selling the business to their employees, creating an Employee Stock Ownership Plan or ESOP. This process was completed in 2004 and in 2007 it became a founding Certified Beneficial Corporation making it a business

Weather watch

ovember 2013 was the coldest November on record (31 years) , putting an end to the mild Fall weather that we had been having. However, it did allow Gore Mountain to open early and to have, perhaps, its best Thanksgiving ski conditions ever. The average high temperature was 40.7 degrees and the average low temperature was 20.0 degrees giving us an average of 30.4 degrees, 4.7 degrees below normal and the coldest on record. The previous coldest November was in 1996 when the average was 31.1 degrees. The warmest November was in 1992 when the average was 40.2 degrees.The highest temperature, 63 degrees, was recorded on the 2nd and the coldest temperature, 0 degrees, was recorded on the 30th. This is the coldest reading on record in November. The previous coldest November day was a 2 degree reading on November 24th, 2000. We also had a 1 degree reading on the 25th which became the 2nd coldest reading in November. Readings in other areas may have been even colder as the river does have a moderating effect on cold temperatures here in Riparius. There were 1019 degree days bringing our seasonal total to 1837.5. Melted precipitation for the month was 4.20 inches, 0.58 inches above normal. This brings our seasonal total to 33.47 inches, 5.5 inches below normal. Measurable precipitation fell on 15 days with the greatest amount, 1.57 inches, measured on the 27th and 28th. Snow fall for the month was 4.8 inches, only 0.4 inches below normal. With the below average temperatures of the month it would seem like we should have had much more snow. However, most of the precipitation fell when the temperatures were above freezing. The river reached its highest level,5.11 feet, on the 3rd and its lowest level, 3.59 feet on the 17th.

not unlike WolffÕ s proposed WSDEs. The base pay for KAF employees is at least 14% greater than the livable wage, which is $9.04 an hour in Vermont, and every employee has only one vote regardless of the number of shares he or she owns. Note that in such industries labor unions are a non-issue. King Arthur Flour Õ s Life Skills Bread Baking Program, now in its 21st year, has been brought to schools in 37 States and taught more than 200,000 4th - 7th grade students, while the classes it holds at its Baking Education Center have been attended by nearly 5,000 bakers. KAF has made social responsibility a core aspect of its business by offering its owneremployees 40 hours of paid time to volunteer for community projects. In recent years it has also has embarked on a major effort to be environmentally responsible by making its facilities more energy efficient and reducing its wastes and emissions of CO2.

Continued from page 1 announced these changes to Warren County supervisors Monday Nov. 25. He also talked of pending contracts the railway is negotiating to haul high-grade stone products out of Tahawus, to be delivered to Long Island. The trips out of the Thurman station, two per weekend day, would begin July 4 and extend through Labor Day, Gonyo said. One run would feature an immediate return trip, and the other would provide a two-and-a-half hour layover so passengers could enjoy lunch and some shopping. Gonyo said that the railway executives were hopeful they could entice 10,000 visitors to Lake George to take the trip in 2014, considering that Lake George hosts up to 80,000 visitors in a weekend. The Thurman-North Creek run would also be held during selected fall weekends. The fare would be $18 per adult with discounts for families.

In line with this approach, the decision was taken to partner with the Indian Lake Public Library on applying for an educational grant that, if awarded, would be used for specific employment readiness training courses offered on line through the library. The objective is to further readiness for employment in telecommuting opportunities and in occupations that would grow the job and employment base of the community.

Adirondack Mountains Antiques Show Presentation

The meeting was also addressed by Aaron Gadway as the Secretary / Treasurer of the Adirondack Mountain Antiques Show that is held annually in the Hamlet of Indian Lake. He informed the committee that the show is coordinating its dates to coincide with those of the Adirondack MuseumÕ s Annual Antique Show. The hope is that by coordinating the dates of the two events, there will be greater attractiveness to what in essence be a larger show. Gadway also approached the committee in the hopes of recruiting some of its members to reinforce the shows steering committee or perhaps consider rolling the activities of the showÕ s steering committee into a subcommittee of the Indian Lake Community Planning Committee. The decision was made to take these suggestions under consideration and discuss them in the December planning meeting. Sarah Lewin, a member of the ILCDC board and Director of Institutional Advancement at the Adirondack Museum, volunteered to approach the museumÕ s show promoter to assess their level of interest in handling the promo-

Gonyo added that the Thurman station, now an enclosed platform, will be outfitted like a traditional train station, featuring various passenger amenities as well as a ticket counter. Such changes would go hand-in-hand with the station being federally certified as a Crew Reporting Point, he said. He added that railway officials were considering ways of drawing more people to the Thurman and Hadley stations, perhaps hosting artisans at work. Ò Both these stations will be open for business,Ó he said. Thurman Station Association President Perky Granger, whoÕ s been promoting local train travel and Thurman tourism for years, applauded the railwayÕ s plans. Ò WeÕ ve thought about these possibilities for decades, and with these changes, we will now have motivation to make things work,Ó she said. Also, the railroad will also be offering far lower rates for its short local trips, to encourage

PC Problem Solving Serving All of Your Computing Needs Over 30 Years’ Experience

In discussion of the Hamlets 3 program, the issue of cooperation among municipalities in planning and development was covered. The discussion highlighted the fact that cooperating municipalities need not be geographically contiguous, but cooperation should be centered on the sharing of common goals. In other words, there is a need for municipalities to communicate with one another regarding their respective goals and where there is overlap, there is opportunity for efficiencies in the planning and attainment of goals. The example of 5 different municipalities needing to develop playgrounds for their children was given. Without communication and cooperation, each municipality would be planning and bidding out individually. It makes more sense to plan the playground once and then bid the building of 5 of the same playgrounds, one in each municipality. One would expect greater efficiencies of resources from the latter approach. In line with this, a sub-committee is to be formed under the direction of Christine Pouch to attend the Hamlets 3 Governing Conference for the purposes of instituting such cross-municipality communication and planning. 23050

Other business:

• In an effort to improve intra-community communications it was decided that the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce web site should become the Ò central hubÓ for all that is planned and happening in the Town of Indian Lake. Listings for the site should be sent to Christine Pouch at the Chamber and Vonnie Little at the Town Hall. It was also suggested that the ILCSD web site should be linked to the Chamber site. • It was announced that SnoCade now has a Facebook page and that all in attendance involved with Facebook should go to the page and Òl ikeÓ it for the purposes of helping to spread awareness of the event and its specifics. • The fact that there is to be a presentation from a solar energy provider at the next Town Board Meeting was announced. This is in conjunction with investigation into the potential use of solar energy in a number of town buildings and facilities. The Town Board meeting will be on December 9th at 7 P.M. at the Indian Lake Town Hall on Pelon Road. The next open public meeting of the ILCDC Board of Directors and the Indian Lake Community Planning Committee with be on Dec. 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the ILCS Library.

“Operation Decoration”

Brenda Valentine, ILCDC Board Member, distributed an announcement that the Holiday Ò Operation DecorationÓ Program is once again available to help Senior citizens needing assistance in hanging wreaths, garland and area residents to ride the trains to move within Warren County, The railway will be split into three zones, and travel within those zones will cost one-third of the price of traveling the full length of the railway, Gonyo said. Since the railway was launched passengers had to pay full price regardless of where they got on or off the trains Ò This is to increase use of the stations and give a discount to area residents,Ó he said. The railwayÕ s Snow Train will be running again this year, offering various new discounts, including a “Hall Pass” ticket for five runs from Saratoga to North Creek at a cost of $99 for adults and $59 for youth. The firm plans to market the deal to students at Skidmore and other colleges in the region. He said the railway is now negotiating freight contracts with nine different companies with the idea of moving stone and gravel products downstate. he estimated the railway would be moving 500,000 tons of aggregate the first year



thatÕ s 5,000 carloads Ñ and 1.5 million tons in the following two years. He noted that the Tahawus stone products might be used to rebuild the runways of JFK International Airport. He noted that Tahawus aggregate was harder and a higher grade than the other materials now available downstate. Gonyo also noted that the railwayÕ s Polar Express run through December had already sold 19,000 tickets, ahead of sales last year. Lake George Supervisor Dennis Dickinson hailed GonyoÕ s news. Ò These changes are great for the county and itÕ s communities Ñ and for everybody.Ó ON THE COVER: A train on the Saratoga North Creek Railway pulls into Thurman Station during summer 2013. The railway is launching new passenger rail service between Thurman and North Creek this summer at a fraction of the former cost.

Snow and cold weather attract skiers to Gore Mountain By Thom Randall JOHNSBURG Ñ Prevailing cold weather and a series of snowstorms in recent weeks has boosted the snowfall that had already accumulated during early November at Gore Mountain Ñ and many hundreds of skiers are now enjoying early-season skiing, Gore officials said this week. By Saturday Dec. 7, Gore should have double the number of slopes and trails open for skiing enjoyment, Gore marketing director Emily Stanton said Dec. 3. The unseasonably frigid weather and ample snow prompted Gore to begin staying open all week long as of Nov. 29, far earlier than in recent years. Ò WeÕ re excited about the crowd and the snow conditions here,Ó Gore Manager Mike Pratt said. Ò WeÕ re happy that Mother Nature nature gave us this gift, allowing the opportunity to have a really good start on our season.Ó The favorable weather conditions have also allowed the ski center to open up enough terrain and chairlifts to offer skiing suited for a wide range of skiing abilities, Stanton said. Ò Were very excited to have this wide spectrum of terrain available this early on,Ó she said. GoreÕ s Topridge chairlift is opening this Saturday, and the Straight Brook quad chairlift that services the summit of Gore Mountain is slated to open shortly thereafter. The snow and frigid weather has prompted the opening of the Uncas Trail, which offers challenging Black Diamond skiing.

Also open this season is the new Greenway conveyor that takes beginning skiers up a modest slope, and itÕ s been very popular with the crowd, Gore officials said. Gore’s gondola to the top of the mountain is open, and so is the Sunway lift. Among the many trails opened in recent weeks were the challenging Foxlair, Ruby Run, Sunway and Quicksilver trails, as will as Arena and 3B, both intermediate runs, as well as the easy Jamboree trail. This Sunday begins the fourth week of operation for the 2013-14 season. The Nov. 16 opening of Gore was the earliest opening of the fullservice ski resort since 1986. Gore is featuring a promotion that now only is building up a crowd, but is helping local people in need: For each item of canned food brought to the ski center, a $10 discount on a lift ticket will be given Ñ thereÕ s a $20 maximum discount. The food is donated to the food pantry at JohnsburgÕ s Outreach Center, which provides various services to the community all year long. Check GoreÕ s website for details. Pratt extended a welcome to people to come up to Gore and join the fun. Ò Skiing conditions are great, and in addition to the snow thatÕ s fallen, weÕ re making snow like crazy,Ó he said. Ò WeÕ ve go a nice crowd, every trail thatÕ s open is in great shape, and weÕ re expanding terrain as fast as we can.Ó LEFT: Skiers head downhill Sunday Nov. 24 on Gore Mountain’s Foxlair trail. The ski center has opened its earliest in 27 years — due to considerable snowfall and frigid weather. Photo by Nick Zachara

Indian Lake to host solar electric presentation

INDIAN LAKE Ñ As part of an ongoing effort to control expenses, the Indian Lake Town Board will be hosting a presentation on Municipal Energy Independence at its next regularly scheduled Board Meeting to be held 7 pm, Monday, Dec. 9, at the Indian Lake Town Hall. Residents and interested parties are invited to attend to hear how the community may control future electricity cost through installation of solar electric panels. The presentation will be led by Ram Shrivastava of Larsen Engineering and is expected to cover economic incentives/loans available through NYSERDA, an overview of Remote Net Metering, examples of community success stories and a opportunity for Questions and Answers. Councilman Jack Valentine has been investigating the potential use of this technology for Indian Lake for more than a year and believes that with the current tax incentives and new regulations, the time is right to move forward. According to Councilman Valentine, Ò The cost of energy represents a significant portion of the town’s budget and the Board is interested in pursuing means of reducing and controlling their future costs. New York State is currently offering a number of incentives to invest in renewable energy and especially in the area of solar electric generation.Ó

Radio installation resolution tabled until all sides heard By Keith Lobdell

ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The decision on who will install new mobile radios in the countyÕ s emergency vehicles was temporarily put on hold Nov. 25 so both businesses looking for the contract could speak to the board. Members of the Essex County Board of Supervisors heard from Wells Communications President Edward Kehn after Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow offered an amendment to a resolution authorizing the installation of the radios, awarding the contract to Wells. Ò This is a very sophisticated, multinet system and the radio is very important to the entire system,Ó Kehn said. Ò If the radios are not in tune properly, then you would have problem. All of my technicians have the highest certification that you can get. I have 10 years invested into the success of this system. I have a lot of money, man hours and sweat equity invested into waiting for this day and I would say that there is no other company in this state this is more prepared to work on your system then us.Ó A second company, Capital Digitronics which has an office in Keene, was not at the Ways and Means Committee meeting. Ò The other company asked if they should be here tonight and I told them that they probably did not have to because I did not believe that we were going to be awarding the contract tonight,Ó Ways and Means chairman and Keene Supervisor Bill Ferebee said. Ò I believe we need to let Capital Digitronics come forward at the full board (meeting Dec. 2) and address any of these issues.Ó The Capital Digitronics bid received by the countyÕ s Request for Proposals (RFP) was lower than the Wells Communications bid, but at issue was whether the contract company needed to be a Motorola (the company that produced the radios) licensed dealership. Ò The installer has to be a Motorola shop or it will void the warrantee,Ó Emergency Services Director Don Jaquish said. Ò We have somebody that can work with the parent company to fine tune the radios once they are installed. They are a lot more complex than the simple radios that we are using now. The really critical part is the configuration of the radios. We are still working

on the template for that. So no matter who is going to install these, they are going to have to work with Motorola to make sure that the installation template is correct.Ó County attorney Dan Manning said the county did not have to go with the lowest RFP bidder. Ò The whole purpose of an RFP is to give you flexibility in purchasing so you do not have to go with the lowest bidder if there are other considerations that sway you to go with another provider,Ó Manning said. Ò They had a higher level of training so (purchasing officer) Linda Wolf felt they were the better option.Ó Palmer said the county had also worked previously on this and other projects with Wells. Ò Linda designed a point system like she did for every RFP,Ó Palmer said. Ò What she really looks at is training, experience and experience with the county. Honestly, experience with the county means a lot with an RFP because you have a track record with the company. She came up with an objective point system that said we should go with Wells Communications.Ó Palmer said there could also be problems if two companies were working on separate aspects of the project. Ò If you have two people, one working on the radio and the other working on the install, if there is something wrong you are going to have the radio people say it is in the install and the install people saying that it is in the radio,Ó Palmer said. Ò This is a step in the process of a $17 million project. We wanted to find the most qualified people we could to install those radios into the trucks. That is a key part of the process because if you have a bad install then you have a bad system.Ó Morrow said the county should make sure it gets the best work possible to avoid future issues. Ò We are going to look foolish if we save 29,000 and we have no radio communications in all of Essex County because it goes down,Ó Morrow said. Ò We looked good saving those few dollars when we decided to leave some stuff off of the public safety building, but now we look foolish not putting the Ô penthousesÕ on the top protect the heating and air and it is costing us a lot of money.Ó Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said the

county should also look at future needs of the system. Ò If we are going to go with another company and Motorola will not give any technical support then I think we know where we have to go,Ó Scozzafava said. Westport Supervisor Dan Connell asked to table the vote until the Dec. 2 meeting when they could meet with Capital Digitronics. The table passed, with Canon and Morrow opposing.

Capital responds

Capital Digitronics President and CEO Tom McCabe said he was surprised to be fighting for his companyÕ s bid during the Dec. 2 regular meeting of the Essex County Board of Supervisors. “This is the first time I can recall ever having to defend a low bid proposal,Ó McCabe said. Ò We look forward to working with you on this. We looked at everything that was put out on the bid sheet and priced all that out. The price is the price.Ó McCabe also addressed the concerns that it would be cheaper in the long run if the county went with Wells Communications over Capital. Ò It will be cheaper in the long run for the county if you are working with someone who is right here in the county and can quickly respond to any needs that come up,Ó McCabe said. Wilmington Supervisor Randy Preston spoke up for the low bid. Ò The reason we went out for RFP was to get the best possible price for the county,Ó Preston said. Ò If Wells was $26,000 lower then I would be making the case for them. I see no reason why we would not award this to the low bidder. They seem to be very capable at this and the eyes that are going to be on this, if they fail at this it is not going to play out favorable for them.Ó Ò We went through an RFP process and they submitted the low proposal,Ó Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. Ò Forget the fact that they are in Essex County, what will this do with our credibility with RFPs in the future. This company submitted the best proposal and the lowest proposal and they should be award-

ed the project. This has become more political than anything else.Ó County Manager Dan Palmer said he was still in favor of the determination made through the purchasing department to recommend awarding the contract to Wells. Ò I stand by the determination that Linda did out of the purchasing office,” Palmer said. “It came out 95-93 and the recommendation was to go with a Wells. I think that we did a fair and accurate job with this an I will continue to stand by it. There is more that goes into this than just price.Ó County Attorney Dan Manning said he felt the board should give more weight to the opinion offered by the purchasing office. Ò It is hard for you to be here and make all of these decisions without all of the information so sometimes you have to rely on your people,Ó Manning said. Ò You have to rely on Dan (Palmer), you have to rely on Don (Jaquish) and most importantly in this case you have to rely on Linda. I have never seen Linda skirt an issue so I think you would want to talk to her about why she scored this and recommended that the contract be awarded to Wells.Ó “I talked with our fire commissioners and they said that they would like to see us stay with Wells,Ó Willsboro Supervisor Ed Hatch said. North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi said the county should talk with Motorola as well. Ò I do not like the way that this is playing out, quite frankly,Ó Politi said. Ò We have spent millions of dollars with Motorola and if this company is so serious about not working with one of these companies, then I want to hear from them. They have some egg on their face if they are going to take sides in this.Ó Ò You need to get all of the facts from Motorola,Ó Manning said. Ò You need to know if this will affect any of the warrantees or your relationship with the company.Ó Jay Supervisor and Board Chairman Randy Douglas agreed. Ò We are not just going to go with a phone call,Ó Douglas said. Ò We are going to send a letter with specific questions to clarify and then I will call a special board meeting later this month if I have to so we can move forward.Ó

Johnny Acorn



tÕ s happened again. IÕ ve received another annual Ô love letterÕ from a virulent member of the antihunting community who has taken me to task for promoting a Ò sickening blood sport.Ó I guess sheÕ s right. IÕ ll admit it, I have stepped over the line, just as VermontÕ s Governor Peter Shumlin did when he took a six point buck on the opening day of VermontÕ s annual deer season. Reportedly, the governorÕ s buck weighed in at 186 pounds. I wish I could say the same, however my buck remains on the hoof and the season is nearly over. Humans canÕ t remove themselves from the natural way of things. By genetic design, we are to be predators, and try though we may, we simply canÕ t deny it. Did you ever wonder why little kids will try to throw a rock at a bird. They canÕ t explain why they do it or try to stop it. It just happens, I believe, because itÕ s part of our nature. I suppose I could always take up another sport, like basketball, or football, but it would probably be difficult to gather together enough 55-year-old athletes to play a game. Funny thing though, I know a lot of 50, 60 and 70-yearold hunters who continue to enjoy their sport. I can even name a few that continue to enjoy the hunt well into their 90Õ s. The challenge that hunting provides to humans is one of the finest ways to express our instinctual nature. There simply arenÕ t a lot of other active sports that provide such a wonderful opportunity for longevity. Hunting is a great source of exercise. It not only burns calories, it helps to keep you fit. Depending on the method, the weather and the amount of time spent afield, you can literally burn off thousands of calories in a dayÕ s hunt. IÕ ll drop 15 to 20 pounds during the average hunting season. Even sitting on watch, you burn calories shivering. Hunting is a life sport which is accomplished with the death of an animal. However, it doesnÕ t always work that way. Most hunters spend far more time hunting, than they do harvesting. On average, I spend nearly a monthÕ s time walking the woods during the hunting season. In 30 plus years of hunting, IÕ d guess IÕ ve spent less than 30 seconds of total shooting time combined. ItÕ s been estimated an adult white-tailed deer consumes approximately 5-7 lb of food per day. It would seem that it would require a lot of munching, but the deer never seem to stay still for very long. In fact, the average whitetail hunter has less than seven seconds total time from the first sight of a deer to the culmination of the hunting experience, which is about the time it takes a reader to finish the following paragraph. Within that seven second time frame, he must identify the deer has a set of antlers, target the vital zone and make sure there arenÕ t any other hunters in the background. This process is often achieved in a driving rain, or while battling a wind borne snow delivered in temperatures that reach to 20 below. ItÕ s all part of our game, and there arenÕ t any referees to call time out. But we wouldnÕ t want it any other way. No two hunting days are ever the same, because conditions constantly change, and whitetails react to those changes in different ways.


Don’t answer that phone The law has been on the books for years, and many hunters are aware that two-way radios canÕ t be used to give the location of a game animal for the purpose of taking such animal. However, the law also prohibits the use of any other Ò electronic communication device,Ó which includes that Ô damn cell phoneÕ which has likely spooked more than a few deer this year. And for those nimble-fingered hunters, who believe a text is not the same as a call, youÕ d be wrong. Tipping over a deer, which you only realized due to the tip in your ear is not considered a Ò fair chaseÕ Õ harvest. I know some will disagree with such a statement, but many years later as you recount that hunt, there will always be a lingering Ô what ifÕ when you stare at that big rack on the wall.

Fling that sling, and other common mistakes It happened many ears ago, but I remember it like it occurred yesterday. I was walking out of the woods with my deer rifle slung over my shoulder. I hadn’t really given up on the hunt, I was simply too lazy to carry the gun in my hands. As I made my way through a thick patch of small pines, I jumped a real Ò racker.Ó It was only a few feet away, but by the time my gun was unslung it was gone, disappeared into the thick cover. That is when I learned to always carry my gun. I believe slings have probably saved more deer than all of the out of whack sights and scopes combined. When hunting deer, be on the hunt all the time. Too often hunters are unprepared to take a shot as they enter or exit the woods, which is often the best time of day. DonÕ t be in a hurry to get to your vehicle or back to camp, take it slow and continue to hunt hard If you stay with the hunt and concentrate, it will dramatically improve your odds of getting a shot; rather than watching a white flag bounce off into the distant forest.

Game harvest reporting period extended Hunters now have 7 days to report their harvest of deer, bear or turkey. Successful hunters of deer, bear, and turkey are required to report their harvest through the DECÕ s online reporting system or by calling 1-866-GAME-RPT (1866-426-3778). The information you can provide will only make the hunting better In the past, hunters were required to report within 48 hours of their harvest. As a measure to increase flexibility for hunters to comply with the reporting requirement, particularly for hunters who hunt in remote areas that lack cell phone coverage or internet access or both, DEC has extended the reporting deadline to within 7 days of taking the animal. Ò The man who goes afoot, prepared to camp anywhere and in any weather, is the most independent fellow on earth. Ò Horace Kephart, Camping and Woodcraft, 1917 Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

Tick tock Hunters, especially those traveling the woods and fields of the Champlain basin should take extra cautions to protect from ticks this season. IÕ ve already received more calls, letters and emails on this topic this year than at any other point in my career. Tuck pant legs into your socks or cinch them with a rubber band or wear high top rubber boots. Avoid sitting on the bare ground whenever possible, especially in grassy areas. Look for a log to sit on, or use a strap on seat that attaches to a tree. Take the time to shake out your hunting clothes when you return home, and be sure to inspect for ticks. DonÕ t take it lightly, Lyme disease is no joke, and it can easily be contracted around here.

Jason Morgan of Willsboro recently took this nice, 217 pound, 10 point buck while hunting with his relatives in the High Peaks Region. Now that’s a healthy lifestyle!

he acorns, beechnuts, berries and fruits of many of our trees and bushes are mature and ready for picking. All of these are really seeds; some just have fancier packaging, like the apples, pears and acorns. The bright colors help aid birds and other animals to see them. Along with the colors, the nutritious meal is the plantÕ s way of making sure the seeds get eaten or carried away for the survival of that plant species. Birds and animals eat the seeds and they get deposited elsewhere in the By Rich Redman droppings. Squirrels and chipmunks all collect seeds and bury them or hide them for winter food sources. This helps spread the seeds throughout the area, where many may grow into trees, if conditions are right. Its natureÕ s way to get seeds transported throughout the planet. In some cases the seeds can just sit idle and wait. They are dormant until there is a disturbance, which creates the right ecological atmosphere for them to grow in. A fire may burn off surface organic matter which exposes mineral soil; a medium where some species prefer. A wind storm can topple trees which expose the ground to sunlight, which activates those dormant seeds to start growing. This starts the ecological plant race to see who gets the sun and who gets shaded out and dies. Some seeds have built in Velcro so they stick to your dogÕ s hair or your coat and get carried to another site. I have a collection on one of my orange sweatshirts that seems to be a sticky seed magnet. I donÕ t have the patience to pick each seed off, so I wear the shirt and deal with it. Who cares? My existence doesnÕ t depend on fashion! These acorns, berries and other fruits and sticky things all contain the seeds for the next generation of plants. A plantÕ s goal is to grow and reproduce. NatureÕ s marketing campaign seems to work. Plants are everywhere. As a soul who likes to manage the woods and fields, I have carried pockets full of acorns, seeds and fruits home in my coats, pants and empty coffee cups for years. Now I carry zip lock bags to collect seeds in. The mud room and kitchen table all have seen my daily collections and have been used to sort out the numerous seeds collected that day. Maybe thatÕ s why my hunting score is low. I am spending my time observing trees, the forest, streams and wetlands and wandering through the woods, taking my gun for a walk, always wanting to know what is on the other side of that hill before me! Once I have my collection together, I plant the seeds in 4 by 8 nursery boxes to get them started. A mix of compost and sand works great for a seedbed. The following spring or summer, if they are large enough, I transplant them. I may need to wait a second year to allow them to get large enough and establish a sound root system, before moving them to their final home. I have collected walnuts, acorns for oak trees, high bush cranberry, winterberries, wild raisins and numerous other seeds to get my wildlife planting. Wild apples crushed and then the mess spread out in a planting box works great. In time small wild apple trees grow if you weed out the bed. I thought I was the only nut who collected nuts, but I found a similar character who shares the passion. Every once in a while you meet that someone who does something extra to give back to wildlife. Such a man lives in our area. He wishes to remain anonymous and I respect his desire for the lack of fame. I will call him Johnny Acorn! For 20 years now, this 83 year old, seasoned outdoorsman has collected five gallon buckets of oak acorns in the fall. Then while on hikes and hunting excursions throughout the Adirondacks, with his red and black checkered hunting coat pockets filled to the wool flaps, he would plant acorns in openings and isolated spots to help provide a source of wildlife food for the future. He has planted white and red oak acorns for two decades now and his offspring of oaks grow throughout the area. I took a tour with the man and he showed me his work of art; his PicassoÕ s of the smooth and woody bark tree world. Red, white and swamp oak plantings growing in thickets of pine and maple. With the memory of a young man, he was able to show me some of the first oaks that started from his acorn plantings. Many are now 3 or 4 inches in diameter at breast height; slow growers because of poor soils and because they were deliberately planted in the shade of white pines, hopefully protected from the mouths of hungry deer. This passion started when he saw the beech trees dying off years ago. He knew the wildlife needed the nuts for food, so he took on the chore of assisting Mother Nature. Sometimes he would transplant oak seedlings, but mostly just planted acorns. With a sharp stick in hand he would walk along and just poke a hole into the earth and drop in an acorn, step it in with his hunting boot and walk on. Survival was in the hands of Mother Earth and God now. The whitetails have had their share of JohnnyÕ s trees. We saw numerous ones that were browsed heavily, with a shape more like a bush than a tree. He has lost many to over browsing, but continued planting each and every year. Eventually some out grew the mouths of the deer and are now tall enough to survive. He told me: Ò plant as many as you can, wherever you can; the good ones are the ones that grow; nature will sort it all outÓ . As we drove home from the tour, he told me he wonÕ t be around long enough to see what happens to his trees. Over the years he has lost many, but many more oaks will survive to live long after Johnny Acorn is gone. This manÕ s oak tree legacy will remain. I will never forget where his trees are located. When my friend Johnny is gone, he now knows, I will take care of them for him and carry on the Johnny Acorn tradition.
